Important Step for Service Restoration

Patrick Seybold's Avatar Posted by Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

Today our global network and security teams at Sony Network Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment began the final stages of internal testing of the new system, an important step towards restoring PlayStation Network and Qriocity services.

As previously mentioned, we’ve been working around the clock to rebuild the network and enhance protections of your personal data. It’s our top priority to ensure your data is safe when you begin using the services again.

We understand that many of you are eager to again enjoy the PlayStation Network and Qriocity entertainment services that you love, so we wanted you to be aware of this milestone and our progress. We will provide additional updates as soon as we can.

Can’t wait. Thanks!

So…maybe tomorrow? Saturday?

At this point I don’t expect it, but I think what everyone was hoping for was a post more like this: “IF everything goes right, PSN ought to be available at X. Unexpected delays are still possible as we test the system and verify it is ready, so please be patient.”

Still, at least we know it’s getting closer!

Don’t care about these posts. I just want PSN & PS Store up.

Anyway, just read an article on Joystiq that apparently the PSN was running on outdated software and Sony had no firewall in place.

Tomorrow… PLEASE!!

yazter said:

May 5th, 4:39 pm

Not even tomorrow — NOW!

Please re-read your statements, there was no ‘expecting’ or ‘probably’. It said it would be online this week.

Tomorrow at the latest.

Any ETA?

I heard a conspiracy theory that Sony was using Anonymous scape goat for a network failure due to lack of maintenance. I don’t really believe it though :P
But i do like a good conspiracy :P

Blkant said:

May 5th, 4:45 pm

Why wont you tell us how much longer? Or even if the goal of it going live again this week is still on schedule? Honestly, this is unacceptable, give us more info please!

AgentX said:

May 5th, 4:45 pm

exterminator_123 said:

May 5th, 4:46 pm

LOL .. hopefully it will be by toesday =)


May 5th, 4:47 pm

I really don’t know why it is hard for these people to give us a solid date!!

Ejsponge61 said:

May 5th, 4:47 pm

Yay! I just hope that it goes back up before the weekend, I don’t think I can take another one without PSN.

EatDeath said:

May 5th, 4:47 pm

Spidey817 said:

May 5th, 4:47 pm

I realize everyone wants PSN back up, but seriously, it’ll be up when it’s up. Obviously they are working as fast as they can, but they have a lot of stuff to get through before we can log on. Don’t forget, it’s not just getting PSN back up, it’s also getting the firmware update finished.

Newhawner said:

let’s hope this 1 is good and provides better service than before!!!!\\\\>>>*~*$$$$$$$$$

IGlowInTheDark said:

May 5th, 4:51 pm

Wow, I’m impressed. Considering the original network must have been tested for years (two at least I’m assuming) before going live.

I hope you guys are paying your QA guys well for all the crunching their doing.

May 5th, 4:51 pm

And my PS(fat) just got YLOD. Well ill be seeing you guys online later.

GrimReaper4383 said:

May 5th, 4:53 pm

PSN still down? :/
*goes back to wii*

MarkakaJin said:

May 5th, 4:54 pm

I know this is kinda rude or whatever but please, have it back up as you guys said it would for this week. I want to play zombies with my friends. T_T

proskatercam said:

May 5th, 4:54 pm

Still disappointing your fans and users, I see.

The_Apprentice said:

May 5th, 4:57 pm

LOL @ *goes back to wii*.


May 5th, 4:57 pm

I just want you to know, I have found out the name of anonymous’ leader, yes they have a main person leading them and influencing their actions. You can have that info for $50,000 CDN. Considering you wont listen to free info.

Also it seems as though someone is posting here as me. If you check that Canadian lawsuit you will only find that chicks name on it.

I have a feeling someone from my school is using the pc I used to use to read this during break time to make comments that I am not too happy about.

If indeed that is the case, I will be suing them and only them for Identity Theft.

Soon eta guys? Friday? Monday? June 1st?

PSN is DEAD!!! It’s never coming back online!

fleinn said:

May 5th, 5:02 pm

So.. I wonder how many new clauses in the user-ageement we have to “agree” to when we get online again?

“I accept that my data will be randomly sent to anyone, for any reason. If you do not agree to this term, please do not use the playstation network. Thank you”. I far off?

s1mpl3______j4ck said:

May 5th, 5:03 pm

I want to know the leaders name, I want to google the crap out of him, and then send him a mildly rude email saying I don’t like his stupid ideals or the way he “helped consumers”.


May 5th, 5:03 pm

YAY! Only 3 more weeks to go!

wocyob said:

May 5th, 5:04 pm
